Editorial Reviews

Sarah's third Sugar Hill Records release finds the acoustic phenom exhibiting an assured and striking musical voice, proving once again the promise of her early acclaim.

Build Me Up From Bones, the third release from acclaimed 22-year-old singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Sarah Jarosz, is set to drop October 1st via Sugar Hill Records. Build Me Up From Bones was recorded in the midst of Jarosz's final semester at the prestigious New England Conservatory (where she graduated with honors) and a rigorous touring schedule. Following her mid-May graduation, she flew straight to Nashville to put the finishing touches on the album. Now set to embark on an exciting new chapter of her life, the songs on Sarah Jarosz's newest release are a compelling portrait of an artist coming into her own.

Sarah's 3 albums are evenly-spaced 2 years apart (2009; 2011; 2013) and show remarkable progress from one to the next, and none more so than between #2 Follow Me Down and this latest release, recorded during her final semester at the New England Conservatory. Her foundation in acoustic bluegrass roots that was so prominent in her debut Song Up in Her Head four years ago is more of a distant echo of the past on Build Me Up From Bones. The songwriting is more sophisticated, the lyrical content more mature and personal, the singing more polished, and the music composition much more adventurous, diving into eclectic blends of folk, jazz, love ballads and even a light touch of neo-psychedelia.

Sarah made her name as a young mandolin prodigy and astounding vocalist with a musical sensibility far beyond her years. On this collection of 9 originals and 2 covers, she fulfills the early promise of her teenage years. The "bluegrass wunderkind" label has been relegated to the attic trunk - this is a fully-realized work of a grown woman with an old soul and 4 years of advanced musical education at a prestigious school that is tailored to help nurture geniuses in the field. By all accounts, NEC has served Sarah well. She has left her proverbial "comfort zone" behind.

A word of caution: people expecting a bare-bones, stripped-down rustic sound centered around a banjo or mandolin (akin to her debut record) will get fewer examples of that on this record. Sarah's mando is featured here on just 1 track (Joanna Newsom's 'Book of Right On') and her clawhammer banjo only on 'Fuel the Fire.' The rest of the album is dominated by her preferred instruments: the Fletcher Brock octave-mandolin, and her acoustic guitar.

What a vital and creative talent Ms. Jarosz is. It is expressed clearer here, in "Build Me Up From Bones," than in her first two fine endeavors. Her music has matured into something I've not heard before, and I've been listening to and playing bluegrass, folk, etc., for over 30 years.

OK...there's Alison Krauss, Sara Watkins, Aoife O'Donovan...all wonderful interpreters of Bluegrass/folk influenced song...and all with angelic voices. Before this album, I would have included Ms. Jarosz in this ethereal company...but no more.

There are multiple layers of music throughout. One would expect the usual suspects of mandolin, fiddle, banjo, et al. To my surprise these instruments are not at the forefront of many of her songs. Sometimes Ms. Jarosz chooses to brandish full throated electric instruments, and adds some serious doses of "electronica" in the form of reverb and echo. In the same mix she includes violins, cellos, and upright bass, melding the musical layers with both harmony and dissonance.

Her rendition of Dylan's, "Simple Twist of Fate," with only one instrument behind her, is an exercise in listening to a unique interpretation, while accompanied by soaring cello phrases.

How does one intertwine classical, rock, mountain, jazz, and folk music, blend them together, and create something that breaks away from all these genres?

Ms. Jarosz has done it. This is new music.

It was Sarah's cover of the The Decemberists' "Shankill Butchers" off of her 2009 debut when she was just 18, that first put her on my radar. Haunting with incredible technical skill on both the banjo and the mandolin--she was incredibly exciting and yet collectively both her debut and follow up record fell flat for me. Quite frankly, it always just felt like she didn't have much to say which in my eyes is one of the worst things in the traditional folk world. It can't just sound good--it needs to be torn from your soul. This is where all that changes.

"Mile on the Moon" has a crooning country atmosphere with an electric guitar giving it a little edge. Album title track "Build Me Up from Bones" is an early album standout and is a great example of how accessible Sarah can make traditional instruments sound. Soft and lilting with picked cello and fiddle notes, its refreshingly genuine and heartfelt. Sarah's take on Bob Dylan's "Simply Twist of Fate" is subtle with extremely minimal instrumentation--but sounds like its an original Jarosz song as she so completely owns it. Her other cover, "Book of Right-On" by Joanna Newsom is actually one of the album's few low points as it doesn't sound that different from the original as well as lacks Joanna's stunning quirk.

This album was produced by longtime collaborator, Gary Paczosa (Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton) and also features a few guests spots with Chris Thile, Aoife O'Donovan, and Darrell Scott--but perhaps for the first time--the focus is consistently on Sarah and her band of two, Nathaniel Smith, and Alex Hargreaves. The music sounds more organic like it was all recorded together and less like it was just Sarah's parts with the rest dubbed. Her songwriting maturity is also on full display.

This native Texan continues to fuse new sounds and influences into her bluegrass roots, so that each of her albums expands upon her strengths while offering surprising delights. Buy this album for its solid songwriting, and you will keep playing it for its astonishing musicianship! I have always loved Dylan's Simple Twist of Fate, and to hear Sarah singing new depths into the song, to the bluesy accompaniment of Nathaniel Smith's gorgeous cello, proves the promise of this talented young artist.
